Chai Pani, which was highlighted in the New York Times, dazzles diners with a mélange of Indian street food and tapas-like dishes made with humanely raised meats and locally sourced ingredients. Embark on an ambrosial adventure by pointing your tongue compass at the bhel puri—puffed rice tossed with diced potatoes, onion, cilantro, and sprinkled with mint and tamarind chutneys ($4.25). The kathi kabab rallies carnivorous taste buds around all-natural chicken marinated in ginger, garlic, and spices and blanketed in a griddled wrap ($7.49). After a feeding frenzy, cool off with a kulfi ($2.99), ¬a gelato-y dessert of frozen condensed milk, pistachio, saffron, and cardamom as sweet and brisk as a snow cone riding a Segway.
Chai Pani has been mentioned in the New York Times and featured in the October 2010 issue of the Laurel of Asheville. Twenty-three Yelpers give it an average of four stars, TripAdvisors give it 4.5 owl eyes, and 68% of Urbanspooners like it.
